With my toes wiggling under the same wool blanket that my mother made me for my birthday one year, I look at the photo of my painted toes from several summers ago. From present, to mid-life to childhood, I’m drawn back into my memories of my grandmother Mona. I began writing Mona’s Work in September 2007. I need to finish it. Today is a writing day.
I allow the blanket made in colours gathered from one of my gardens to drift me back to a place full of butterfly mornings…and wild flower afternoons.
I’m back where the hay is being cut in the field and I am making potato salad with my grandmother using new potatoes, radishes and green onions from her garden. I leave you here to enjoy this beautiful song by Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions off of “Bavarian Fruit Bread”, as I go off to my day of writing.

Good luck to ya. You’re right, it’s definitely a writing sort of day. ^^

very pretty music. thank you for sharing
thanks Kathy… I love this song. Play it often. Glad you stopped by:)
I like the granny afghan… 🙂
Thank you Linda. I can see why you like the afghan. What an amazing blog you have. The afghan blanket in the photo is made from real super-wash wool and has a tremendous feel and depth to the colours. My mother had all these left over balls of yarn from making sweaters. Lucky me:)
Just where my mind is these days – afghans, quilts, gardens, and potato salad from the garden. I feel sure these are part of my creative times. And I so love the song! Perfect.
Ah Martha I am sure you and I must roam the same creative breeze during the day. Thank you for taking the time to comment on this post from awhile back.
